I'd bet you could pop those off pretty easily with a needle in a pin vise under magnification.

I would not use mechanical cleaning on siver, it could end scratching the coin. Lemon juice is probably the safest option for this coin.

I would not touch this coin either. Risk outweighs any minor benefits. Its already very nice - exceptional clean cheek on the obverse.
